    i guess that's a pretty good price then.
    though nzd200 for a mp40 seems quite expensive, no?

    I bought that at a random huge Japanese sports shop, and it was still about 10% cheaper than the original price. Actually, a friend of mine also got his Mp44(same as mp40 really.. ) for the same price, 200NZD.

    I only understand the hardness of information. The translation is something beyond my grasp :p:D.

    Btw one more thing to add. This racket seems to be more favourable among the females compare to men.

    Well, it does have a big... face;). ISOmetric face taken to the extreme perhaps? Not very sure if I like the way Yonex is coming out with their new products. Flexible shafts that produce powerful shots:confused:.

    Stringing Tension

    Dear Ants,

    Thank you so much for all your reviews, which make me aware of the differences of each of those rackets.

    One stupid question from a newbie, the stringing tension of all your test rackets are always at 30lbs or even higher, whereas the suggested maximum is 25 lbs.

    Are your test rackets different from the commercially available ones, so that they can be strung at least 5 lbs above the recommended ceiling?

    Thanks for your advice.:)

    The recommended tension is what tension you racquets have to be to get warranty by yonex. The actual limit of the racquet is much higher (36lbs or a bit more). So it is possible to string up to those high tension, but his warranty is void because of doing so.

    Thanks. I never know that.

    But under that tension, is the racket easily be broken?

    And do you need much larger force to drive the cock in return for better control?

    Thanks again;)
